Units of Kp

What are the units of the partial pressure of gasses in Kp?

Re: Units of Kp

The units would be any units that measure pressure like atmospheres.

Re: Units of Kp

Partial pressure can be measured in any normal pressure units. Most commonly this will be in atm or pascals.

Re: Units of Kp

It is any unit that can measure pressure such as atm or bar.

Re: Units of Kp

The partial pressure can be in any units, but remember to use the same units for all of your gases. Also, the Kp value itself will change based on what units you use for the partial pressure of the gases. Its important to use the appropriate kp value in your calculations (based on what units the problem gives you).

Re: Units of Kp

Kp is usually atm or bar, but make sure you use the same units for all the gases in the problem.

Re: Units of Kp

The units of the partial pressures of the gasses in Kp can be in bars or atm. However, it is important to remember that Kp as a whole does not have any units.

Re: Units of Kp

The partial pressures of the gases will be in atm or bar, but the Kp will not have units, as it is the equilibrium constant.

Bars or atms I believe
